Walk into any supplement store or do a search online for protein powder and you will find numerous brands with prices ranging anywhere from about $45 to over $80. With so many choices, making a good decision can be difficult. Luckily, protein supplements are pretty well regulated. In my experience, while some may sound fancy, exotic and revolutionary, the truth is, if you get it from a reputable retailer, they are all very similar. I've tried many different brands and have yet to notice major differences with the exception of taste, mix-ability and price. Don’t get ripped off! You should be able to get a good protein powder for $45-$55 (based on 5 lbs containers). By good, I mean one that per serving has 20-25 grams of protein, under 5 grams of fat, and under 5 grams of carbohydrates.
Here’s my review of the Elite 100% Whey Protein.
Here are Amazon links to my top three choices for a protein supplement in no particular order.
I’ll buy which ever one is convenient and least expensive at the time of purchase. Full disclosure, I do have an affiliate account with Amazon, and I am a Prime member. Most of the things I buy online are through Amazon. Their service has been great, and I love that they have product reviews from costumers. Make sure to look over the reviews before purchasing. Those reviews have helped me make intelligent choices when purchasing a product online.
When buying a protein supplement, keep your digestion and digestive issues in mind. Some people have trouble with certain brands. Also, if you plan on making smoothies, choose a flavor that will compliment the ingredients you plan to add in the smoothie.
